Hello friends and neighbors,

Happy Thursday, August 31st, 2023. 

It’s the last day of my favorite month of the year. Why is August my favorite month? It was the month I was born, then 24 years later, the month I brought my first child, my only daughter, into this world. 

August is a special month for me. 

I don’t have an ego, but I think I am special. I am glad I am here. I am happy that this is my time, and try my best to use it wisely.

I don’t think I am better than anyone else. I just think I am me, and me is an awesome person to be. 

I love me. I love the mind of me and the soul of me.

There is a love and light inside me that yearns to shine. The more I see the spread of darkness at this time, the more brighter I yearn to shine.

I yearn to stand tall like a sunflower and face the light. 

My favorite bible verse:

 “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds…..”

(Matthew 5:16)

My favorite quote: 

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness

That most frightens us. …….. 

Marianne Williamson 

I love this entire quote from Marianne Williamson.  It has always deeply resonated with me.

I have walked alone my whole life. Even though I am loved and feel loved, married, and have five sweet children, it’s lonely being me. I’ve felt different. Weird. Like an alien who does not belong here. Like I’ve barely scratched the surface of knowing who I am, why I am here, and how long I have here. 

I know I am here to do good work beyond being a mother and a wife. I feel it in my soul. I see this timeline will require truth-seers and tellers. People with the wisdom, discernment,  love, courage, and strength to speak the truth and help guide others. I am working on strengthening those qualities within me. 

I am also looking for my fellow warriors of love & light. 

I am looking for my community. 

I am here (on Earth and online) for a purpose. Not to make people feel comfortable when this is meant to be a moment of discomfort for all of us. This is a moment of transition and shifting. 

We are all shifting and transitioning at this time in one way or the next.

Now is the time to move toward where we feel led because, in the next season, that will be where we are supposed to be, and the people around us are the people we are meant to help and connect to in some way.

We are meant to help each other. Now is the time for community, cooperation, and alliance. 

Dear Millennials and Gen-Z, it is our time to lead. Dear Generations before us, it is your time to guide, advise, mentor, support, and pass on the baton. 

I am now preparing to accept my role as a scribe, sage, and activist. 

I want you to know this. Things will get bumpier (unsafe, uncertain, and uncomfortable) for the next year or more. 

My advice is to stay safe and alert (woke), hold on tight, fear not, don’t get weary, don’t give up, keep the faith, and be strong. Take care of yourself- eat, sleep, exercise, enjoy nature, pursue joy, etc. I am no expert on those things, but I am working on it. 

Be a part of my circle of support. Let’s love each other for no reason other than because we are here and all connected and need each other more than we realize. 

Thanks for reading.
